Science Museum of Minnesota and Twin Cities Public Television
Every young person is a potential engineer! Ask, imagine, plan, create, test, improve . . . then try again! It’s about being curious, creative and wanting to play!
WATCH THIS GREAT VIDEO: ENGINEERING IN ACTION
At the Twin Cities Public Television studios, as a part of Hands-on-Science, Science Museum instructors presented a great exploration of the engineering design process through fun, hands-on activities with the young studio audience. Now you’re ready to practice being an engineer at home!
Can you build a track to roll a round object down?
For This Project You’ll Need:
USE THESE MATERIALS TO BUILD A TRACK FOR YOUR ROUND OBJECT. EVERY TRACK WILL BE DIFFERENT—ENGINEER YOURS THE WAY YOU WANT IT!
What went well? What were your challenges?
Can you improve or change your track?
No matter how your engineering experience turned out, we hope you and your family had fun doing them! We want to see your creations and hear your feedback. Share your results on social media using #ShareYourDiscovery and let us know how things went!
